The Washington Center for Women in Business created the fifth annual INSPIRE Women’s Business Conference for forward-looking women business owners and business leaders in our community.  Attendees seek to increase their knowledge to overcome the challenges they face in business, learn new skills, effectively communicate value to their customers and bring innovation into their organization.

The 7-hour, one-day conference has a theme, “renew, reconnect and re-energize.” INSPIRE attendees will take part in a panel discussion, followed by morning breakout sessions, a lunch keynote, and an afternoon breakout session. The day ends with a happy hour networking/shopping mixer.

Exhibitor tables and sponsorship opportunities are still available. Last year over 200 women attended the conference and event organizers expect this year to attract even more. If your target market is women business leaders, don’t miss this event!
